Wow, I love my Legere "American Cut"/ "Signature" reed!!! Its amazing and free blowing! Finally Ive found a reed that doesn't Argue with me in public or private. We just make and spread Love allllllll Day and Night Long!!!
I bought a couple from you before and liked them so now I'm re-ordering.
As a classically-trained player who is now a casual adult player, these reeds are a life-saver. I really just don't have the time or energy to maintain cane reeds very well, and the stress of not knowing whether my reeds are going to be good was really taking away my interest to play. Enter the Signature cut reeds. These fit perfectly on my Pyne - Bel Canto mouthpiece and sound great. I'd say they're about 90-95% as good as my good cane reeds, and solidly better than my mediocre cane reeds. While I would love a slightly crisper response in the clarion, overall I'm super happy with the way these play. They're reliable, feel great, and last a super long time with almost no maintenance. As a bonus, they come with really swanky cases now too, which is a great reason to order direct from legere instead of buying the old ones from other vendors.
The reeds play the same way every time, this is not false advertising. American cut can replace all but your top 10% of cane reeds, less if you don't use a tool like reed geek. Legere is even nicer for classical playing.
Great reeds that offer consistency every time I put one on. Responsive and continues with a rich sound
Enjoying the American Cut Bari Reed! Free Blowing and precise!
the soprano signature reeds are just what I need for a consistent, warm sound throughout the entire range.
Been awhile since I tried the Legere reeds for my Bb soprano clarinet. Been using the Signature Cut for years with my bass clarinet and love them. However, they just weren't right for my Bb soprano. The new European Cut, though, is perfect for my set up! So glad I tried them
Great reeds for our Alto Saxophone, but they also fixed an issue with our order when I accidentally sent it to the wrong house. This is our new go-to store for reeds!
I have played Vandoren V16 #3 reeds for years on my NY Meyer/Mark VI set up. For me, nothing beats a great V16...but they're hard to come by, as we all know. I recently purchased a Legere American Cut 2.75 reed, and I'm loving it. It's my go-to reed at this time. The construction of this reed, with more material in the middle spine (the heart), makes for response and overall comfort that aligns with my instinctive approach to my horn. Low notes respond easily and consistently, the overall sound is full and focused, and I can really push the air to get a lot of "edge" when I want to. I'm going to order one for soprano sax, as well. Highly recommended.
I’ve been waiting for months for the baritone American Cut and I absolutely love it! I’ve been using the American Cut on alto since it came out and it gave me exactly what I was looking for and the baritone certainly did not disappoint!
I’ve been using cane reeds for 53 years and my fellow clarinetist told me about Légère. I was very apprehensive but decided to give one a shot. I loved it for my O’Brien crystal so I ordered one for my Vandoren M30. I’m a classical player. The tone is beautiful. No more ordering a dozen reeds to find one or two worth keeping. It was perfect right out of the package. I’m sold! I’ll order another next week. Well done Légère!
Excellent reeds I have never had any problems with them.
I would have liked a sticker ha ha.
The European Signature reed, which I have been playing exclusively for more than a year and a half, is an excellent product. After just a few days, you will find that the reed is superior to almost any cane reed you have ever used. Indeed, compared to cane, it's better in every way: feel, sound, hold/control, dynamic range, ease of articulation, the works. This is the future and the future is now. If you are still using cane as opposed to Legere European Signature reeds, you wasting lots of time and lots of money.
I cannot believe how well the American Cut reeds perform. This is the first synthetic reed that I’ve ever used that is just like the best wood reeds I’ve used in the past!
